Anti-malaria pinup calendar

The radio show All Things Considered on NPR recently had a segment on How The U.S. Stopped Malaria, One Cartoon At A Time
You can listen to it at the link or read the transcript and see some awesome images.

 (T)he U.S. Army was working hard to eliminate the parasite on military bases and among the troops. They broadcasted anti-malaria jingles on the Armed Forces Radio and distributed cartoons and "pinup calendars" encouraging troops to cover up and use repellent.
